Provincial Judge L. VI Hudson reserved his decision on sentencing for one week, to Feb. 7.

A who became concerned after the man fail- ed to report for work, found the body. Hay's neck was cut from ear to ear in the familiar pattern of the Slasher. The coroner's office said there was also evidence the Slasher had beaten the man into sub- mission before killing him. "There is no question it was the said Assistant Police Chief Daryl Gates. He declined to elaborate. Hay, described as a large man, was found partially cjad in the living room of the J130- a-month apartment. A police spokesman said the door was unlocked. He said there were no signs of a struggle. A woman who lived next door said she heard a thump- ing sound about midnight Thursday night. "It sounded as if someone was thumping, but I didn't pay any attention because it stopped." Hay lived.about six blocks from the apartment of the Sla- sher's eighth victim, George Frias, 45, a secretary at the Los Angeles Hilton, killed last Wednesday. The other Slasher victims were derelicts who lived on skid road in downtown Los Angeles, about six miles from the Hollywood area where Hay and Frias were lulled. Police have said there are identifying clues at the scenes of Slasher killings. A psychological profile of the Slasher compiled for police depicted him as a "sex- ually impotent coward an animal who hides in the dark and preys on weaklings and cripples."
